romanian / ţigan : etymology of mişto

I was on the phone with my mother a few days ago and I was telling her how great the film Across the Universe was and I described it as being "mişto" - a word I had heard used my whole life.

Suddenly my mom dropped this on me : "Asta este un cuvînt ţigan" or something to that effect. I was thrown off a bit but it made me wonder - what is the etymology of the word mişto?

Thanks for your help in advance!
